What is Camelis ?
This software is an implementation of Logical Information Systems (LIS).
A LIS allows to automatically organize data given an indexation
of objects by logical properties, and to combine boolean
querying and non-hierarchical navigation when searching

How does it work ?
LIS are based on Concept Analysis, which provide a formal way
to organize object-centered data in a concept lattice.
This lattice acts as a navigation space where each concept is a
navigation place, and any object can be in any number of places.
These places are reached by following navigation links that are
automatically computed from original data.
A logical generalization of concept analysis is use so that
expressive formulas can be used to describe objects, formulate
queries, and represent navigation links.
